The Tag of Happiness

7:00 AM


The lovely Adelyn tagged me for some things, which is awesome of her. Seeing as I haven't done tags in a while...let's get right to it. (She tagged me for three different things but I believe I've done two of them before, so we'll get right to the one I've been waiting to do!)

  1. Yes!!! Those books and movies are the best. I noticed tea wasn't on the list. Are you a tea drinker? If you aren't, then what are you doing with your life! :D

    I also tagged you over at

    You can do it if you want, no pressure. It's your life. ;)

    1. I do drink tea, but not very often. I'm not a fan of most of it -- but I adore peppermint tea and lemon ginger tea when I can get it. And I collect mugs. *nodnod*

  2. Green apple is truly the best scent. Thanks for reminding me that I love it deeply ^_^

    1. Ohhh I love it so much. I love it as a taste, too!

  3. I love Inception, and I actually just watched The Prestige last night. I don't love it; it's too horrifying and sad for me. But I love the mind-bending constant plot twists, and the slightly steam-punkiness of it. I couldn't sleep because I couldn't stop thinking about it. XD

    1. I happen to like horrifying and sad things, but it's just a personality difference :) It's a mind-bending movie.

  4. Basically literally NOTHING makes me happier than The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald is absolutely and utterly my one love. I cannot at all express the importance that book has for me.

    I'm going to read Les Mis soon! Not quite sure if it'll be next, or one or two books down the line, but soon! I'm slightly nervous, but excited.

    Love your words.

    PS I just read your comment blurb-y bit (what's that even called?) and it (specifically the last word) made me smile. Never a time when thoughts of Johnny Depp don't brighten my day.

    1. Yessss. And enjoy Les Mis! It's another one of my favorites, obviously.

  5. I love A Sky Full of Stars! And I'm seriously missing the beach right now, too.

  6. Books: The entire Harry Potter series / The Mistborn Novels / Eragon (only the first book) / Unwind / Everlost / The Martian Chronicles / Cinder

    Movies: Any Marvel movie (all the Marvel movies please) / Inside Out / Tangled / Terminator / Star Wars: The Force Awakens / Anything that makes me think / Selma

    Words: Antithesis / Penultimate / Archer / Dichotomous / Bladed / Hemlock

    Songs: Destroy the Map by 36 Crazyfist: Enter Sandman by Metallica: Deer in the Headlights by Owl City: Figure it Out by Royal Blood: Radioactive by Imagine Dragons: Down with the Sickness by Disturbed: Headstrong by Trapt: Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes: Throne by Bring Me the Horizon: Heart of Fire by Black Veil Brides: Pachelbel Canon in D: Shoshtakcovich Op. 180: Rock & Roll Train by AC/DC. (Most of this would make a good INTJ mix, I feel.)

    Misc.: The Star Wars casting yes indeed / It's amazing / There is not a single white male lead / and that's awesome / And epi eight is delayed until December 2017 / But it's for rewrites based on the fans' reactions to the characters / WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? / I know what I'm hoping for / and I know what I'm afraid they'll mess up / *cough* problematic faves *cough* / but I'll just have to see, I guess / AND THE JEDI IS THE GIRL / I mean, I would have been perfectly fine with it being Finn too / The central Jedi being a black man would be a massive step too / BUT THE JEDI IS A GIRL AND SHE'S WRITTEN SO WELL / And there's a good Slytherin / and a bad Gryffindor / This movie. / This movie hits me right in my well-concealed feelings and presents an intellectual challenge to the part of me that openly loves that / ugh.

  7. (hi I'm new)

    Love the whole list! Haven't heard of most of the songs though...*adds to listen list*

    The Martian is definitely NOT on my good feels list though: I hadn't ever heard of the book or movie, and had this brilliant book plot a week ago -was all pumped- and turns out it was almost completely THE SAME PLOT. (except mine was on a planet's moon) *sobs* The next day my sister showed me the trailer and burst my bubble. :/

    Combat boots are the BESTEST EVAH!

  13. So much awesome stuff in this post! We share a LOT of favourite movies. Especially Megamind, Jurassic World, and Guardians of the Galaxy. I actually don't know any of the songs on your list though. Well, I've heard an instrumental version of A Sky Full of Stars (the Piano Guys version is so cool), but that doesn't really count. I must listen to them all now!

    1. Well...Shusterman doesn't make me happy. *sobs*

  15. I like this! Nothing like spreading the [fantastically fandom-full] cheer!

    Also, yessss to Coldplay and Twenty One Pilots. (The former is really the only reason I plan on watching the Super Bowl this year. Ha!)

  16. This is so cute (draws imaginary line, because Aimee isn't necessarily cute) awesome! Green apple is one of the best things in the world and WHY HAVE I NOT WATCHED THE FORCE AWAKENS YET? Yay happiness!
